Notes & Reviews:

The libretto of Charles Gounod's opera 'La nonne sanglante' (The Bloody Nun) is based on 'The Monk', a nineteenth-century bestseller by Matthew Gregory Lewis. At the time this amalgamation of Gothic novel and religious elements met with harsh criticism. Although the premiere in Paris in 1854 was a splendid success, the new Paris theater director was strictly opposed to the opera's mixture of sacred and secular subject matter, and so La nonne sanglante was dropped after only a few performances and fell into complete oblivion. The Osnabruck Theater decided to invest its time and devoted effort in the preparation of part material for the orchestra and in the production of a score, which previously had not been available in full.

Gramophone Magazine
Gounod's writing for the voice, even at this early stage, is highly characteristic, as are many of the melodies...[Baek] is firm and his well defined, high-lying voice seems suited to the French repertoire...it's good that the Nun should have seen the light of day once more and all credit to Osnabruck for its share in the revival.
